{week 5} bring on the sunshine

We are soooo happy to have it not smokey outside and to have the sunshine...think we may need to upgrade the pool; but until then loads of fun are had. Grady thought it was sooo funny that Carrigan was kicking water at Makenna....(hands covering his mouth laughing!)~he makes me laugh. sneaking a shot without them knowing.
hope its sunny in your world! ~

{week 4} a purpose...

everyone has a purpose this day...working on projects for the fall fair. Grady said "me too!" every year my girls work on projects to enter. this year maybe Grady will too! this is last weeks post...busy busy time of year!

Friendship isn't a big thing - it's a million little things.  ~Author Unknown

On a very smokey day...what should we do...we were the only ones heading out to scout island to explore...needed somewhere to burn off some energy! Picnic in the park; came home smelling like campfire!

{grady} jump rope and popsicles...

He is all boy....except that he has 2 lovely big sisters....so he tries to keep up with them all the time. He is chillin eating his popsicle and wearing his sisters crocs...(he has a thing for his sisters shoes:)!) and then he decided to show me how he can jump rope. He was sooo pleased with himself.  He is growing up way to fast for my liking...but not fast enough for him before long he will be able to do everything they can do and maybe more. (don't mind his messy clothes;yes that is popsicle drip all over his clothes...my motta is a dirty kid is a happy kid!)

{apples} summertime treat

Carrigan loves hanging out on her "rock" she spends hours playing on it. Today she was outside picking apples while I was watering. I snuck in to grab my camera and catch a couple of shots of her. She loves to be my model.....she is loving her new haircut! Short and sassy....

{week3} pea patch


Mmmmm...decided to raid the pea patch today....wow they were sooo plump and yummy. A great afternoon snack...love how Grady just pushes his way in between his girls to get in the middle of whatever they are doing....

okay just one more....needed a shot of the backside....typical day at my house...girls dress themselves (hopefully hair is brushed!) and G...well here he is bottomless; working on potty training outside; not sure that he is getting it~

{flowers} Williams Lake

this is how the flowers grow in my garden.....not too bad for a bunch of seeds mixed in with our veggie garden. the hummingbirds we're enjoying it today too!

A Tuscan Lady {Whidbey Island}

This place is a little corner of heaven all lovingly cared for by an amazing lady named Darla. She has the most amazing gardens with a lovely pond flowing through it. The two homes on the property the Casa and the Villa are works of art. Every detail is amazing in itself.  I hope one day to return...

{wedding} love this one...

just working on some edits....came accross this one...had to share!

{week 2} money

keeping with my weekly post of a picture with my three children in it...here we are opening their first bank accounts. first: count all money is piggy banks. then here is Makenna signing her card for her account.
(all the ladies at the bank were impressed on how well behaved my children were:))
Grady traded the lady at the teller his "hockey money" for a sucker...he was thrilled with the trade. Then we received a tour of the "vault".  I don't think our change jars will be safe ever again....

of course Carrigan doesn't need an excuse to get dressed up....she is my little supermodel wanna be...
lovely sisters below:
